  • Great first introduction to cricket
  • Safe and fully accredited
  • Valuable time with your kids – mums and dads are encouraged to take part too
  • Easy online registration

Every child that registers will receive a backpack full of goodies including a cricket bat, ball, activity book, personalised shirt and cap all sent straight to your door.

Sessions start from May in 2018, so register early to ensure that you book your place for a Summer of Big Moments.

Martin Vose, Oldham Athletic Community Trust Community Manager added: “We’re delighted to be working alongside such an established body in the form of Lancashire Cricket.

“Whilst some might be surprised by the partnership we see it as an ideal opportunity to ensure that more children are active and have further access to high quality sports provision within Oldham.

“In the coming months we will be working in partnership with The Lancashire Cricket Foundation to work on offering further opportunities to children & schools across the borough.”

Bobby Denning, Club and Community Cricket Manager (South) from the Lancashire Cricket Foundation commented “We see this as an ideal opportunity to promote All Stars Cricket via the Oldham Athletic Community Trust’s already established programmes.

“I look forward to considering other opportunities, beneficial to both parties, as the relationship develops. I thank Martin for his enthusiasm to promote All Stars Cricket.
